On my last day in Cuba I took a tour with Cubatours……. for a day to Vinales. 65 CUC. My only regret is that the tour did not allow me to really experience the town.The tour was well organized , comfortable and very informative. They kept to the schedule , left on time. Would recommend them . I booked the tour out of the Hotel Nacional Havana.
Vinales is also cigar region , Known for the Cohiba.
Viñales is a beautiful and lush valley in Pinar del Río province of Cuba, with a population of around 10,000.It’s about 26 kilometers north of the city of Pinar del Río. It’s a great day trip, if you want to get away of the hustle of Havana. Like most of the country I have seen , it’s lush , green and peaceful. They also claim to make the best Pina Colada in Cuba. I can admit that during my stay in Cuba I had my share of Pina Coladas , and probably , most surely more than my share. LOL . Theirs is absolutely divine , but the next time I will put that claim to the test with pleasure.
A little history on this tobacco plantation, which has been owned by this family for 4 generations.
Unfortunately because we came during the rainy season, we weren’t able to see the tobacco plants. The tobacco is not planted until October . Maybe another excuse to return.
This is how they roll.
Lunch at the Restaurant Mural de la prehistoria overlooking the wall was quite typical ,pork , rice and beans, salad and a desert of guava . Actually it was pretty good food.
